Is it not our responsibility, who are people of faith to educate our children that today, is not just about eating fish, bun & cheese, hot cross buns and chocolates products.
Today reflects upon the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.
This principle is key to humanity as he gave his life for progression. Sometimes today in everyday life the principle is the same, as we make sacrifices for progress and indeed in the not too distant past many people in history have made the ultimate sacrifice of their life for the progress of humanity.
We may well reflect upon these sacrifices, but, it’s what we really do with it. Is it the case that we remember annually, or should it be the case that we embrace these sacrifices as a part of our daily lives in order to ensure that we appreciate the legacy in order to build upon it, so that our children have a greater understanding of what days like today are all about? It is our collective responsibility to educate those who lack understanding enabling them to fulfil roles that; otherwise they could not owing to a lack of belief or confidence despite their abilities.
Therefore as we celebrate Easter let’s reflect upon the true meaning of what Easter is all about and embrace some of the important principles, remembering although Christ was crucified, his work continued and his legacy lives on today. Is this not the sign of a long lasting legacy that is built upon daily?
We must ensure that we are also building a legacy of creating a more inclusive, cohesive and equal society for all.
